      It's finished!!!

      The fence is done!!!!! Can't wait to finally be able to enjoy my yard again. I know I'm going to be nervous the first time leaving them out since it's been almost a year of looking out my door and a quick potty break to avoid any altercations with the neighbors dogs. Any tips to ease my anxiety.

      Hurray!
      Maybe don't leave them out at first, but make sure there are no dips in the ground or places to wiggle out. That will ease your mind.
      It is great summer weather for playing outside for them.

      I already checked and there is nothing they can squeeze thru but they can still sniff and probably see shadows under the fence. The one place that worries me is where the gate is the fence next to that has a bigger gap. Not sure if he's planning on filling it with dirt if not I will be getting something to put there.

      YEAH! Go out with them for a while and make sure they are not pushing the limits, i.e. digging or trying to squeeze through.

      Fences do make good neighbors.

      I never leave my dogs outside unless I am with them. I'm just worry. The neighbors were out tango included so I took the sheltie out first. Brought treats made them watch me when tango heard them he barked and just ran the fence I could here is tags ever time I said leave it and theye looked at me they got a treat pretty soon they could care less and tango would occasional run the fence but not like I thought. The challenge will be gauge. Since he has to be leashed walk til wed I'm conditioning him now same way as the other dogs watch me and rewarding for looking at fence then at me.
